Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012 Discussion, MORE STS SPY PICS! Art and Science be damned! in Past Cadillac Vehicle Discussion; Clicky!

Whoa people. Haven't seen these anywhere else, thought I'd throw them down. Looks as though the art and science will be here, but... it... might... look.. good....
I have the photocopy pic and these, and the front and back look different. Notice the photocopy has the taillights with a slight protrusion, yet the protrusion doesn't show in the newer spy photos. Also, you'll note that the body IS bigger than a CTS.
Good possibilities here...
I'm thinking it's gonna have some of the look of the newer STS + some A&S, but not much. Either way.. I'M DROOLING WITH ANTICIPATION.
Oh! I forgot to mention! I took a look at the other pics, and being an avid photographer / digital publications guy-
1. The R&T is a total computer dupe. The wheels are from the 16, the rest is 16 + CTS + a little blending. You'll note the windshield has been darkened, and the grill has rainbow artifacting from a shitty resample job.
2. The photocopy was an artists rendition or a computer generated pic. You can see that the reflections and lighting in the pic are completely different - the car has a downward shadow, yet the major light source is coming from an angle - usually found in artist's rendtions to make the picture look better.
Either way, I think that the photocopy spy pic may be VERY close to what the car will look like- the shape is very similar.
I don't think the R&T photo is completely bogus. It says in the magazine that it is a computer enhanced image - no subterfuge there. It could still be a reasonably true representation depending on where they got their information and photo.
I'm leaning more towards the R/T pic being some sort of reinterpretation. When I get photoshop reinstalled on my work machine here tonight, I'll point out exactly what they did- However.. judging from the shape that's under these new spy pics.. R/T may be closer than we think- but I don't think the car is going to have as much style from the 16 as everyone thinks. The Sixteen seems to be a product that will have its own style to it, so I wouldn't be cutting any parts of that to make the new Seville. If anything, I think it will be CTS / Imaj Concept influenced, with a touch of late model Seville.
